Human touch, that is one thing that every human being needs in life to thrive. Without human touch an infant will actually cease to thrive. Children will become withdrawn, will not be able to retain new information being taught and they will begin to slow in their physical development. Adults will experience more chronic disease, depression, anxiety, stress, irritability. They experience less relationship satisfaction and they also begin to experience less ability to interpret emotions of others which leads to unsympathetic behaviour and lack of empathy. People need touch regardless of how old you are. If you do not receive it, you will not thrive in life.
